build self-confidenceStruggling to craft the perfect New Year’s resolutions? Perhaps you can’t commit to resolve in 2017 due to fear of failure. Per a University of Scranton study, just 8 percent of people achieve their New Year’s goals. Many struggle to maintain their objectives because they aren’t realistic when setting goals. Designing overly-specific guidelines typically becomes unmanageable past January. Capillus encourages you to take a broader approach with New Year's resolutions: build self-confidence in 2017. For hair loss sufferers, the key is to build yourself up first, and then tackle other ambitions with the needed composure to follow through. Consider the following ways to build self-confidence in 2017 while managing hair loss:

Visit a Hair Loss Specialist

Often, a simple doctor’s appointment provides reassurance when suffering from undiagnosed hair loss. Physicians help rule out underlying medical conditions that contribute to hair loss, like anemia, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disorders, nutritional deficiencies, emotional trauma or lupus. Allow yourself peace of mind to know if your hair loss is hereditary, a condition called androgenic alopecia, and not something more serious that requires further medical intervention.

Be Yourself

A full head of hair suggests health, vitality, strength and masculinity or femininity – making it a desirable trait among most people. Although many embrace total baldness, numerous hair loss patients experience scattered thinning and shedding that isn’t as fashionable. However, hiding isn’t the answer. Seclusion promotes feelings of shame, worthlessness and anxiety. Try to maintain your regular, social routine without allowing hair loss to hinder an emotionally healthy lifestyle. If you’re reluctant to engage socially, wear a well-fitting wig, sunhat, scarf or baseball cap for discretion. In addition, visit your hair stylist for special shaping to conceal thinning at the crown, part or around your temples.

Get Serious About Treatment

Wearing a wig or hat forever isn’t practical. For many hair loss patients, the best way to restore lost confidence is through regrowth. Men can choose from restoration surgery, prescription treatments, topical foams or hair loss laser caps. Women, on the other hand, are not prime candidates for transplants since female hair loss is usually diffuse. In addition, women who are pregnant or who plan to become pregnant are not good candidates for finasteride (brand name Propecia), as the drug can lead to birth defects. Low-level laser therapy is the only non-invasive approach to hair regrowth that comes with no known side effects in men or women – aside from fuller hair. Capillus® laser caps for hair regrowth are FDA-cleared, confirming our consideration for patient safety and product efficacy. In addition, using Capillus® is simple and convenient, making your self-confidence goals attainable and realistic for the long-term.   Capillus would like to wish our readers and followers a healthy and Happy New Year.
